Simmons Comics Group made a triumphant return to insane crowds at San Diego Comic Con 2012 with people clamoring to get a copy of the SDCC Exclusive Simmons Comics Anthology. Well, for those who couldn’t make it to the convention or missed out due to crowds, here’s your chance to catch up!
Leading up to San Diego Comic Con, Gene Simmons explained his plans for ZipperTM, DominatrixTM, and Gene Simmons House of HorrorsTM, “We intend on using the finest artists and writers in the comic book medium,” and added, “This is just the beginning… As a lifelong fan boy, I’ve been madly in love with the medium ever since I was in my early teens and have continued to ravenously devour comics through the decades. Along the way, I created our three comics – ZipperTM, DominatrixTM and Gene Simmons House of HorrorsTM.”
Simmons Comics Anthology Volume 1 features the first chapter of ZipperTM, DominatrixTM, and Gene Simmons House of HorrorsTM, PLUS the first chapter of the all new crossover event, Zipper Versus Dominatrix: The Slave Trade, written by Erik Hendrix (The Evil Tree, The Book, Deadly Harvest) with art from Yannis Roumboulias (Deadly Harvest). Gene describes “ZipperTM is an alien among us. DominatrixTM deals pleasure and pain, CIA meet T & A. Gene Simmons House of HorrorsTM consists of stories by some of the best talents in comics today.”
Simmons Comics Anthology will be released quarterly through 2013 with Volume 2 coming in May 2013, Volume 3 in August 2013, and Volume 4 in November 2014.
If you’ve never read the books before, they are definitely not your mainstream superhero book from Marvel and DC, and that’s a good thing! We get a little taste of what we know as the “rock and roll lifestyle” displayed to those of us who are most definitely not part of that world.
